Lyrics

Maybe it was the music
Or that heavenly sky of blue
Maybe it was the mood I was in
Or maybe it was really you, really you

This heart of mine was doing very well
The world was fine as far as I could tell
And then quite suddenly I met you and I dreamed of gay amours
At dawn I woke up singing sentimental overtures

This heart of mine is gaily dancing now
I taste the wine of real romancing now
Somehow this crazy world has taken on a wonderful design
As long as life endures it’s yours, this heart of mine

This heart of mine is gaily dancing now
I taste the wine of real romancing now
Somehow this crazy world has taken on a wonderful design
As long as life endures it’s yours, this heart of mine

As long as life endures it’s yours, this heart of mine
This heart of mine, this heart of mine
